Here Are My Recommended Programs That You Should Install, To Keep Your Computer Clean And Running Smooth



 

Recommended Anti-Virus Software

 

Avast Anti-Virus (Free Home Edition)

Recommended By Me, But Slows Computer Down During Boot.

 

AVG Anti-Virus (Free Edition)

Also A Great Product, Is Slow During Scan And Gives A Lot False Positives.

 

Avira AntiVir (Free Edition)

Very Fast, Very Small , Works Very Well.

 

Comodo Anti-Virus (Free Edition)

Very Bloated With Extra Tools ( Not Very Beginner User Friendly, But Works Great.

 

Microsoft Security Essentials ( Genuine Windows Needed)

The newly released free antivirus by Microsoft, has a clean and modern interface, The detection rates are very good, Security Essentials has very few false positives, significantly fewer than AntiVir, Avast and AVG. MSE automatically updates once a day.

 

 

Recommended System Cleaners

 

CCleaner

Freeware system optimization, privacy and cleaning tool. It removes unused files from your system - allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history. Additionally it contains a fully featured registry cleaner. But the best part is that it's fast (normally taking less than a second to run) and contains NO Spyware or Adware! :)

 

 

 

Recommended Anti-Malware Software

 

MalwareBytes (Free)

Recommend By Me,Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware can detect and remove malware that even the most well known anti-virus and anti-malware applications fail to detect.

 

Super Anti-Spyware (Free)

SUPERAntiSpyware Professional features our highly advanced Real-Time Protection to ensure protection from installation or re-installation of potential...

 

HijackThis

HijackThis inspects your computers browser and operating system settings to generate a log file of the current state of your computer. Using HijackThis you can selectively remove unwanted settings and files from your computer. Because the settings identified in a HijackThis log file can belong to both legitimate software and unwanted malware, it is important to use extreme caution when choosing to removing anything using HijackThis.

 

 

Internet Web Browser Alternatives

 

Mozilla Firefox ( with extensions )

Recommended By Me, Fast, Most Secure, Has The Ability To Fit Anyones Style, Very User Friendly

 

 

Opera

The Most Compatible With Websites Built In IE Code. More Secure Then IE

 

 

Safari

This Is For Apple Turnovers That Want To Stay Connected To Something They Know.

 

 

Google Chrome ( With Extensions )

Recommended By Me, The Fastest Of All The Web Browsers, Highly Customizable

DO:

 

Manually update and scan your system with an anti-spyware program at least twice a month.

 

 

Manually run ' Windows Disk Defrag' or other disk defragmentation program at least twice a month.

 

 

Be very cautious of downloading and installing programs from the Internet, or from free CD's that come in the mail or are available at public places like stores. Use a search engine to research any programs you are unfamiliar with to check if they come with spyware, adware or viruses before downloading and installing.

 

 

Use 'Firefox' web browser instead of Microsoft's 'Internet Explorer'. 'Firefox' is more secure and can use extensions, which are little programs that give extra features to the browser. For example, one extension, 'Adblock Plus', blocks ads from downloading to your computer, making your Internet browsing safer. Also 'Firefox' looks better.

 

 

Uninstall programs that you do not use anymore This will boost performance.

 

To Do This:

 

 

1.) Click on 'Start', then click on 'Control Panel'.

 

2.) In the 'Control Panel', click on 'Add or Remove Programs' ('Programs and Features' in Windows Vista), and then wait for the list to appear with all the programs on the computer.

 

3.) Click on the name of the program you want to remove, then click the button on the right-hand side that says 'Remove' or 'Change/Remove' (In Vista, simply click the name of the program and the process will begin).

 

4.) Once the uninstaller starts, follow the options presented to remove the program as completely as it will allow.

 

Each program uninstalls a little differently, but usually it's just a series of buttons asking if you're sure you want to uninstall and if you want all of it uninstalled. Just follow the logical path to get the program off the computer and it will be gone.

 

Please note that you should never use the Add Remove Programs to uninstall any programs you think are malicious, This could cause more problems. And should be taken care off by a Tech,

 

 

DON'T:

 

Do not Install additional spyware or adware removal programs without researching them first. There are many fake ones offered that actually are spyware and adware, or give false results, offering to fix the problems only if you buy the paid version.

 

 

Do not Install more than one antivirus program. If there are multiple antivirus programs running at once, They will interfere with each other and can actually PREVENT themselves from doing their job right.

 

 

Do not install any other programs for security without researching them first. There are many programs that claim to enhance Windows security that actually do just the opposite.

 

 

Do no install toolbars for the browser, such as Yahoo, Google, Windows Live or any others. These take up valuable screen space while browsing the Internet and use up system resources, as well as present a potential privacy issue (such as reporting your Internet activity back to their respective parent companies).

 

 

Allow unnecessary programs to start up when the computer starts up. This slows down the whole computer and saps system resources from the moment the computer is turned on. Activate each program as you need it, then shut it down when you're done with it, rather than letting it continue running in the background.

 

 

Allow programs to install additional programs. When installing one program, uncheck all options for installing other programs such as toolbars and things like that. Many companies bundle their software with programs from other companies as a sort of advertising method, and this can result in several programs being installed for each one you actually intend to install. This can have all sorts of unintended consequences, from security breaches to system resource hogging to nuclear war. You don't want to cause nuclear war, do you?

 

 

Accept file transfers or attachments from people on instant messengers or email if you don't personally know them.

to seffiks: if those antivirus really did work "very very well", you wouldn't need six of them would you?

 

 

 

AVG free. if you get a virus that can't cure, call it herpes and get over it.
